Gender Identity and Narrative Truth: An Autobiographical Approach to Bias.

Consiglio, Anthony

Abstract: Describes a high-school course called "Autobiography" that discusses nonfiction and gender. Describes how students write their autobiographies piecemeal while reading and discussing a partly autobiographical work of fiction, and how the course eventually centers around identifying biases of different sorts in one's own and in others' writing. Discusses bringing gay and transgender issues into the course. (SR)
